  • The closing track of Hidden City marks a change of pace. Ian Astbury commented to The Sun: "The album may have a certain dystopian or Orwellian flavour, but the final lyric is 'Awake once more anew.' It's a rebirth, like Elgar or Turner. That dawn scene you might see over London of a beautiful sunrise, with clouds in the sky, the air is brisk – it's the refreshing of the soul. An optimistic place."
